April 19, 2013 – Nigerian Actor Pete Edochie Is My Biological Father – Says Kenyan Model Ephy Saint

In this recent interview with Michael Alonge, the alleged secret son of Nollywood actor Pete Edochie has spoken up once again.

Ephy Saint, a 24-year-old Kenyan model still stands by his previous claims that veteran actor Pete Edochie is his father.

Read the interview excerpt below

Tell me a bit about yourself?
I’m 24 years old, raised by an awesome single mother, who I would gladly give an organ to. I am working so hard to live my dream which is to be the best in the world as an actor / model and a movie maker… I love life and have very fun-loving people around me. I always grow to be me and no one else.

How and where did you grow up?
All over, with my mum and my grand folks, in Kenya.

With your mum; how about your father?
Hmmm, I don’t know, I never met him.

Can you tell us why?
I can’t …He is a magician …had me and disappeared, so I can’t tell much about him.

Aside Kenya, where would you love to live?
My father’s land … Nigeria

Nigeria?
Yes, Nigeria! I learnt he’s a prominent and well known and respected actor in Nigeria from the South Eastern part of the country, as I am made to believe by my mum. That’s the little I know about him.

Are you sure?
My mum said so, in fact, he’s still very much an active participant in the industry.

Taking a closer look at yourself, who do you think your dad is?
Well, my mum said and I want to believe her that multiple award-winning actor, Pete Edochie is my biological father.

How sure are you?
I can’t prove it; I only got wind of it last year.

Can you give us reasons why you can’t prove it?
Distance and lack of information from both of them, my mum and him, that is, my biological father, Pete Edochie.

But does your mum realise that you need to know who your true father is?
She does, she kept it away from me until last year when she told me about it. I was shocked.

Have you made effort to reach Pete Edoche after that revelation?
Yes I have, like any other man who might not be in the know about an existing biological child of his; he denied. Saying he has never been to Kenya in his entire life.

Through what means did you reach out to him?
My mum sent someone to him and the person return with his message that he said he never had any fling with anybody in Kenya because he has never been there in his entire life.

What was your reaction when he said that?
It’s either he’s lying or he has a twin brother.

This fact you have is not enough to call him your father….
There are talks here and there that he used to live in Nairobi in Kenya in a small town called Buru Buru.

What year?
1987-1988

Has it ever occurred to you that your mum might not be factual about this?
I believe my mother. She has always been there for me, I don’t see a reason why she would lie or hide any information about my father or paternity. This is not a matter to be joked with.

So she told you that Pete Edochie, Nigerian bearded actor is your father?
Yes she did.

Doesn’t your mother have a picture or something she can put down as evidence?
She was having a picture of the two of them together, according to her, she gave it to a friend to help trace him and that friend said he has misplaced the picture. Now you can see the critical situation I have been placed.

What surname do you bear?
Muriithi

How? That’s not a Nigerian name as you claim to have a Nigerian father
Some other man took responsibility of bringing me up but he also left soon after my sister was born, but his mother brought me up that’s why I kept the name. He’s a Kenyan.

Did this other guy too divorce your mum or just left like your dad?
Left, my mum was never married to any of them .

What attempt have you made to come to Nigeria and solve this riddle once and for all?
If a man wants nothing to do with me and I believe him to be my father, I also don’t want much to do with him.

From the look of things, I guess only DNA can settle this paternity issue?
If he truly hasn’t been to Kenya as he claimed and I take him through all that, he will hate me the more, so DNA test seems like a long thing right now. I want to believe that everything happens for a reason. I am made to succeed in life. I am not looking for money or anything from Pete, just his acceptance. But of what use is the success for a man to deny the paternity of his child. It’s cruelty and all of us shall meet to account for our various deeds on earth.

The burden now rests on your shoulders to press further on the paternity issue, since you know your mum is not making a mistake then you should stand as a man to unravel the mystery surrounding your birth.

May be this is how God wants it. In Kenya, I am a big name and I have followership but in God I trust. Thanks for your advice anyway

Lastly, what’s that secret desire?
I would love to be buried in Nigeria, the land of my father.

Something is definitely not adding up here.

His mother said Pete Edochie impregnated her in a small town called Buru Buru in Kenya..but the actor has denied ever being to Kenya.

Hope this young man is not seeking popularity the wrong way..

Where is the picture of his mother? and who are we to believe now….

We have sent an official email to the actor…We eagerly await an official press release from Pete Edochie.

  1. My brother, pls stand ur grand bcos i belive dat ur mother will not lie with something serious like dis ok. My surgesting is that u should sue him if he does’nt accept u as his son ok. I know how bad u feels rgt now. Take care and be carefull 4 ur life ok.

  2. The whole thing is confusive,no real evidence to prove. Maybe the mum only said it to avoid any problem with him. No pix to prove. Well,my only advice is for the guy to keep his head up,and continue with his life. God shall help him succeed in life.

  3. Dis guy culd b telin lies frm d way he spoke. How could his mum b careles abt d only evidence she had? She was supose 2 hav come 2 nig herslf nd iron things out wt pete.
    Beside its lyk she is d wayward type if nt hw would a woman b having kids out of wedlock?

  4. U jst av 2 put ur believe in christ,is the one dat can solve the isue,u shal make it ijn

  5. In all apogee of sincerity,i would concur that a woman stands,under normal natural conditions of coitus and conception,the fact of a child’s or children’s father.On the other side,the world now is so complicated that deceptions,controverses and propaganda seem the order of the day.If with this parternal dilema you are comfortble…a model and ambitious,what else would you want.Blood,it is said,is seven times ticker than water.Judgement day is every day before the last judgement that will be conducted by GOD.

  6. God knows the truth. Man can’t tell who’s tellin the truth or lies. Thanks to DNA test: it may help; that’s if all parties agree to a test.

  7. But hw come it was only 1 picture she took with him? And how can a movie star say that he has not been in kenya for all his life? Well lets just watch & see what will happen next.

  8. This boy who said that Pete Edochie is his biological father,must know that we are no more living in darkness, we are in Western World,he should accept doing DNA which is the easiest, that is if he wants Nigerian father.

  9. I believe the woman is telling the truth, let Pete Edochie check himself very well, more over the boy is famous and one of the celebrities in Kenya, he’s not somebody that is looking for famous or name in the name of Pete Edochie. If our famous actor is afraid of what his wife at home will say or the kids in naija will say, I think he’s a man, he should think twice. This woman cannot lie, why she did not mention any of the actors in Kenya, had it been she did not know who impregnated her, it is easy for her to tell the boy that his father is dead and the boy will believe. Actor Pete Edochie, please sir, we need you to think about your visit to Buru Buru in Kenya…..hmmmmm

  10. all iwant to say is for them to conduct DNA test,that is the only solution to this dramatic story pls iam begging u ok .

  11. Guy, i feel ur pains ok
    Blood is thicker dan water dey say, 4rm d luk of things, u inherited his way of life(Acting)
    i advised u go 4 DNA test dat says it all

  12. DNA is the last solution.let it not be like the other hero who had a son out of wedlock and after his death,he said that he had disowned his biological son,rich men u should tighten up ur pants to avoid creating problems in ur families,may God help u in Jesus name,Amen.

  13. Guy stay focuz coz its d only tin to get u wer u want to coz their is no gret man witout history so kip ur games rit and ur fingers straight

  14. Looking at the photos closely, i cant help but say this guy looks like his father Pete Edochie aswell as his step brother Linc Edochie. The resemblance is there and im not sure naija gist posted those pics for notin. They should have seen the resemblance too. Hmmm poor thing!!! Mais c’est quoi, pourquoi devrait-il refuser la paternité de cet enfant qui a vraiment besoin de son amour paternel et quelqu’un avec une expérience de lui taper dans le dos et dire ‘fils, je te soutien’

  15. I think d best thing to resolve d issue on ground now, is to go for an DNA test. So that d story will not look like a forged one.

  16. I will advice DNA pls sir dnt abandon ur blood cos of wht ppl will say cos u dnt knw 2morrow beg ur wife & children dey 4give u & bring dat one closer 4 d look of tings he doest nd ur moni his made already. do wht u preach

  17. What is Yul Edochie saying, I believe he is matured enough to handle this matter without his father consent. If I am one of pete’s son, I wouldn’t have been quite. I believe the Kenyan boy is saying the truth

  18. It seems from the dialogue that the boy is reluctant to go for DNA test.Coz he was supposed to be at the forefront of requesting such a test in order to put his anxiety to rest.

  19. Please i advice you go for DNA test okay, Don’t worry with God all things are possible, be strong.

  20. This guy is sick. I was in the old Anambra State during the said period. Pete Edochie was then working for Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS). He used to present a programme “Music from the Masters” on ABS 3 FM Station. If he is very sure of his fact, a DNA Test will resolve the issue

  21. To start with, the Kenyan boy should do a DNA test to see if he has any links to Negro blood (since Kenyans are not Negros). If this fails then he should wrote sm unreserved apology to all Nigerians. Why did he not claim to be Obama’s half brother? My man Pete, don’t even bother to answer the boy if you have never been to Kenya AND sowed wild oats. If the woman had said it happened in Enugu or Onitsha then it would have been a different story but then maybe she does not even havd an international passport!

  22. Oga mi, your mama dey lie. What would be his gain denying you. Only looking for popularity. If he knows Pete is really his father, he should come down to naija and look for him, have a DNA, and settle the confusion.
